. by the way, frankly, so do i. minutes ago president obama released a statement saying the report's findings are intolerable and inexcusable. and it also says i've directed the secretary to hold those responsible accountable, and to make sure that each of the inspector general's recommendations are implemented click so that such conduct never happens again. >>> now not only the irs targeting scandal, but also the administration's decision to secretly seize phone records of the associated press journalists, as well as the national security i don't covert took place following the benghazi terrorist attack. now the dueling press briefings were held this afternoon but neither of them resulted in very much substantive material. instead what we saw was more stonewalling from the least transparent administration in american history. watch this. >> this is a matter, when it comes to the irs, that is under review by the independent inspector general. we have not seen that report. >> i'm not familiar with all that went into the formulation of the s&pes from that matter. >> other than press reports we
barack obama, for whatever reason. it's that kind of day in the news. >>> today is scandal o'clock all day long. we saw the guy forced out of the irs grilled about the tax agency using single key words to skrine out people for scrutiny. he did tell two higher-ups last june that he was going to be doing this investigation into how the conservative groups were treated. he told the deputy treasury secretary and the general counsel at treasury that he was starting this inquiry as to whether conservatives were being unfairly singled out. he told them he was starting this inquiry but obviously not what the inquiry had found since he hadn't found anything yet since he was just getting started. republicans have seized on this news because of the timing. saying it's important there were administration officials outside just the irs itself who knew before the election that there was at least a potential problem with the irs targeting conservative groups. shouldn't that have been disclosed publicly? could that have become a salient issue in the election had the administration disclosed that inves

: the second thing we need an answer to is about president obama. the president that night, by all accounts, never went back to leon panetta, never went back to hillary to get an update on the situation on benghazi. he went to sleep, got up the next day, went out campaigning. then two weeks later on "the view," before the united nations, was still echoing something that all of us knew was false, that by then he should have known was false. so doesn't he have questions to answer here? what did he know, when did he know it, why was he repeating a lie two weeks later? >> absolutely he has to answer. he's the one, we don't have any accounting for the vast part of that night. hillary clinton, as you say, these are many of her top advisors, coming up with changes, or pushing revisions. is it really possible she didn't know? >> sean: who are the people in the state department we're referring to, what did they know it, why did they know it, and the reason we need to prevent this from happening again, and the perso american people, and e families who lost loved ones, have a right to know. anything y

(applause) >> thank you. thank you very much. we have a great audience here in new york and welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city. i might have been one of the first people to bluntly point out that the obama administration is not transparent and covering up scandals and lying to the american people. and now with the white house caught in the middle of three separate scandals, benghazi, and irs targeting of conservative groups and the justice department illegal probe in the journal phone records, the rest of the media is starting to catch up including the pundits who praised the president. >> he's accountable for it and i am offended by. it it is not a political or conservative or liberal. it is trusting your government. >> the transparency thing is crumbling. >> the president held a press government and he did well. he had been listening to their

republican sound bite of the past five years. >> our top political priority should be to deny president obama a second term. >> that was senate minority leader mitch mcconnell in 2010 right after the mid text elections. when it came to 2012 president barack obama won a second term. imagine you lost, failed on your top priority as a party. what's next? you stop him. throw everything at him. you tie up his judicial and cabinet nominations. you vote against his landmark health care legislation. not once, not twice, but 38 times. even after it's been passed, implemented and upheld by the supreme court. you make sure all roads to washington lead to president obama. the biggest revelation that the irs gave scrutiny. whose nads include tea party, 912 and patriot. yesterday the house ways and means committee held a hearing about the issue. dave camp had this to say to open the discussion. >> it seems like the american truth is hidden from people just long enough to make it through an election. the american people have the right to a truth tochlt a government that delivers the facts, good or bad, no m
clinton's not a target. president obama's not a target. >> oh, that's a dandy fish. >> well, darrell issa is on a fishing expedition. i think he's going to get skunked. you know, there's a really bad case of benghazi fever going around in this country, and right now it seems like the only people who have it are conservatives for some reason. you know, you can't tell me that the driver of this story, the big driver of this story and these congressional hearings, it's only about four dead americans. of course, anytime we lose servants across the world, it's a horrible thing, like 4,000 in iraq, but i think the benghazi thing is nothing more than a republican effort to smear hillary clinton and the obama administration. and the proof is in the sunday morning talk shows this morning. john mccain comes out complaining about, what, a government cover-up? >> they're in the midst of a presidential campaign, the narrative by the obama campaign is that bin laden is dead, al qaeda is on the run, not to worry about anything, and here comes this attack on benghazi. for the present spokesman to say tha
for special scrutiny conservative groups like the tea party. president obama announced the resignation of the led of the agency. steven miller, a 25 year veteran of the irs, and its acting commissioner for the past six months, will step down next month. earlier in the week attorney general eric holder announced a criminal investigation to determine where the laws were broken and so targeting the conservative group. the irs admits to the criminal targeting. three years after the complaints began, and probably only because the department of the treasury ordered by congress had investigated the matter and was on the verge of finally making public its findings. now congress is back in the act, big time. multiple hearings are now on the docket. the first was friday before the house ways and means committee, where the first to fall, acting commissioner steven miller was in the hot seat. >> first and foremost as acting commissioner i want to apologize on behalf of the internal revenue service for the mistakes we need and the poor service we provided. the effective organizations and the americ
the obama administration of spying on their employees. executives from the news organization sentler to the attorney general eric holder today protesting this invasion of privacy arguing it could, quote, disclose information about the aps activities and operations that the government has no conceivable right to know. tonight we have an all-star line-up to discuss these spying allegations, benghazi and, of course, the irss list. you will hear from rand paul and the former vice president of th united states, dick cheney. >> tonight fox news can confirm that the additional scrutiny went well beyond simply harassing organizations with the people tea party or patriot in their title. we are also learning the guidelines focused on government spending, debt, taxes, and people interested in making america a better place to live and those critical of how the country is run. for the the first time the president was asked about the down-right taxpayer funded witch hunts and how he declared his innocence. watch this. >> i learn about it from the same reports most people learned about it. i think
is up in a moment. first, james rossen in washington with the latest. >> good afternoon. president obama today promised to deal with any structural or management issues that may have contributed to the irs's targeting of conservative-leaning groups. in a news conference with turkey's prime minister today, the president said he didn't know about the targeting until he was presented with the recent inspector general's report at the treasurery attend which found groups being subjected to, quote, inappropriate criteria when they sought tax. and status. the president waved off the idea of appointing a congressional investigation. >> between those investigations, i think we're going to be able to figure out exactly what happened, who was involved, what went wrong, and we're going to be able to implement steps to fix it. >> nothing dissolves the bonds between the people and their government like the arrogance of power here in washington. and that's what the american people are seeing today from the obama administration. remarkable arrogance. >> the president also expressed confidence in attorne
will confront is this is a challenge of the entire process of big government. this isn't did barack obama as a person. this is not a personality defect. this is the nature you are of large bureaucratic government to do dangerous things, then to lie about having done them, and then to smear the people who tell the truth and i think we need to confront. never is there a better argument for repealing obamacare than what you are watching day-by-day as this starts to unfold. >> interestingly today that very thing happened. only two democrats in the house of representatives, again, they have done it before, voted to repeal the healthcare bills and only two democrats voted with them. the breaking news about the woman that was in charge for the irs tea partying targeting is now running the irs obamacare implementation? is that a good choice? >> first of all, this ought to tell you that this certainly reaches up into the white house. does any serious person believe that the top ranking internal revenue service person in charge of implementing obamacare was just casually picked? does anyone think t

. if you listen to most of the washington chatter this week, you would have thought that president obama was about to walk across the south lawn to a waiting helicopter never to return again. as peggy noonan put it we are in the midst of the worst washington scandal since watergate. so now with the week over, let's see exactly how much damage has been done to obama's approval rating. here you can see it. back on monday when the week of scandal began, the gallup daily tracking poll found 48% approved of president obama's performance and 45% disapproved. fast forward to yesterday after that long and bruising week of watergate coverage and we see that obama's approval rating has increased to 51% with -- now with only 42% disapproval rating. that's about as well as obama has done in any poll since his second term began. how do we make sense of this? one place to look at is our current partisan divide. among democrats president obama's approval rating stands at 84%. among republicans latest approval rating is 15%. and that divide is really the story of the obama presidency. scandal talk is no

employees. and then there is the continuing controversy over benghazi. today president obama said. this. >> the whole issue of this -- of talking points, frankly, throughout this process has been a side show. what we have been very clear about throughout was that immediately after this event happened, we were not clear who exactly carried it out, how it had occurred, what the motivations were. >> bill: the president believes that he and his administration did nothing wrong. by telling the world that an anti-islamic video might have caused the terror attack in benghazi. but there was at the time strong evidence the video had nothing to do with the attack. the white house, the state department, both knew that. so, who exactly told ambassador wright to deflect the real evidence by raising the video? who exactly did that? america can differ about the difference of these stories. and the press has been reluctant to cover benghazi. now that seems to be changing. >> you cannot explain away susan rice's performance on those sunday talk shows in which she said it was not a terrorist attack. it g

no knowledge of the seizure, the obama administration has taken significant steps in recent years to investigate the disclosure of classified information. and joining us here in new york, we have the executive editor for the "associated press," kathleen carol. thanks for being with us. a day after this story drops, what's your -- first of all, your response to what the white house has said about the seizure? >> well, obviously, we're distressed that the justice department felt the need to seize our records and not tell us about it. certainly distressed as our ceo said in his protests to the justice department that the scope of the inquiry's so huge. more than 100 journalists for the "a.p." work at the places whose phone numbers and phone records were seized by the justice department. >> kathleen, the origins of the investigation have to do with a story that the "a.p." broke on a plot in yemen that originated in yemen, correct? >> we're not entirely sure about that, but that's our best guess. >> but at the time that that story ran, it ran after the associated press cooperated with
